    Curious about how we made the film? Watch our Making-Of, "the Journey Behind Le Gouffre"!


    Le Gouffre is the first animated short film produced and directed by Lightning Boy Studio, a young creative team based in Montreal. The film tells the story of two spirited travelers who come across an incredibly wide chasm on their journey and decide to build a bridge to cross it. Released in February 2015, the project had first gained a lot of attention following the huge success of its Kickstarter campaign, which allowed the creators to finance the movie's post-production. Many were impressed by the passion and determination of the small team of three animators, who spent more than two full years creating the 10-minute film.

    As of now, Le Gouffre has been selected in more than 60 festivals around the world and won nine awards, four of them for "Best Animated Short".

    - THE TEAM-

    Lightning Boy Studio was born in 2012 out of a shared passion : to tell great stories. The three founders met in animation school in 2009 and have dreamed ever since to be able to work together on projects of their own. Le Gouffre is the result of their first collaboration. The team is now working on a new idea for an animated feature film and is looking for partners and investors to join in on this adventure.

  3. Cloudrise is a short animated film directed and animated by Denver Jackson.
    It was created in the span of four months from conception to completion.

    Set in a fantasy world above the clouds, Cloudrise follows a pivotal moment in the lives of two lovers as they face a great challenge. Watch as Miko and Tenku fight to survive an attack on their new airship and take the necessary measures to help each other. Hold on to your seat as you witness how far someone is willing to go to rescue the one they love. This is an action-packed short film that ties together various fantasy/science fiction influences.

    “Breathtaking. One of the best short films I have ever seen.”
    - Kazu Kibuishi, Author of New York Times Best-Seller Amulet

    "As the story unfolded, I audibly cheered at a certain moment and had my eyes glued to the screen until the very end."
    -Lauren Davis io9.com

    "Fans of Final Fantasy, Legend of Korra and Miyazaki will likely find a lot to love in its gorgeous, painted backgrounds and midair martial arts. Stay till the end; it's worth it."
    -Laura Hudson - BoingBoing.net

    "Cloudrise is a breathtakingly touching and inspirational animated short film that was created by Denver Jackson."

    Based on Exodus 12:
    21 Then Moses called for all the elders of Israel, and said unto them, Draw out and take you a lamb according to your families, and kill the passover.
    22 And ye shall take a bunch of hyssop, and dip it in the blood that is in the bason, and strike the lintel and the two side posts with the blood that is in the bason; and none of you shall go out at the door of his house until the morning.
    23 For the Lord will pass through to smite the Egyptians; and when he seeth the blood upon the lintel, and on the two side posts, the Lord will pass over the door, and will not suffer the destroyer to come in unto your houses to smite you.
    24 And ye shall observe this thing for an ordinance to thee and to thy sons for ever.
    25 And it shall come to pass, when ye be come to the land which the Lord will give you, according as he hath promised, that ye shall keep this service.
    26 And it shall come to pass, when your children shall say unto you, What mean ye by this service?
    27 That ye shall say, It is the sacrifice of the Lord's passover, who passed over the houses of the children of Israel in Egypt, when he smote the Egyptians, and delivered our houses. And the people bowed the head and worshipped.
    28 And the children of Israel went away, and did as the Lord had commanded Moses and Aaron, so did they.
    29 And it came to pass, that at midnight the Lord smote all the firstborn in the land of Egypt, from the firstborn of Pharaoh that sat on his throne unto the firstborn of the captive that was in the dungeon; and all the firstborn of cattle.
    30 And Pharaoh rose up in the night, he, and all his servants, and all the Egyptians; and there was a great cry in Egypt; for there was not a house where there was not one dead.

    LYRICS by David King, aka Duke of Uke:

    DEATH: Falling stars you wished upon
    are cinders now and now they're gone
    their residue festoons my fetid field.
    Unfeeling husks of lovers past
    the shells are all that ever last
    I've taken everything that they concealed.
    Whoever told you life was fair?
    Look around you, everywhere
    the cruelty of nature is displayed!
    Why the scorn?
    Why the surprise?
    Everything that's born must die
    and it isn't I who made the world that way.

    What wicked little twist of fate
    placed you here upon my plate
    Here, where no one hears your cries?
    Where was your god to steer you through
    Perhaps your god's forsaken you
    Otherwise why lead you here to die?

    BA (spirit of the dead): I, I know the way how
    I'll melt away now
    I know the way.
    I'm feeling bliss now
    Dissolved to mist how
    strangely I go
    Now I finally know

    DEATH: It's merely moments now,
    moments now until
    your feeble flesh bends to my will
    and it will
    so rest your weary head.
    There'll be no pain,
    no pain at all
    as everything you are dissolves
    Your fate resolved
    upon my silky thread.

    BA: I, I know the way how
    I'll melt away now
    I know the way.
    I'm feeling bliss now
    Dissolved to mist how
    strangely I go
    Now I finally know
